FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY HAVE WEIGHT LOSS AND LIFESTYLE COUNSELING?
Lifestyle counseling, as opposed to a diet, cleanse, or fad, focuses on fundamental knowledge and behavior change, which are critical for long-term weight management. Lifestyle counseling is flexible enough to address issues and challenges that are specific to your life and circumstances. Diets fail because major lifestyle changes are difficult. But our all-encompassing wellness program is more than just a diet: it's a new way of life. Dr. Gupta will provide you with the tools you need to change your lifestyle and lose weight that you can keep off.
HOW FREQUENTLY DO I NEED TO COME IN FOR VISITS?
This is determined by your customized plan and will be discussed with you during your initial consultation visit. TDr. Gupta will support your progress during these meetings by fine-tuning your program, adjusting any medication, monitoring your health, and developing strategies to deal with your unique challenges. This allows you to reflect, troubleshoot, ask questions, and express any concerns as you educate yourself on how to keep the weight off.
DO I NEED TO EXERCISE WHILE ON WEIGHT LOSS COUNSELING?
Not at all. Understand that exercise is a wonderful and effective wellness tool that we wholeheartedly support, but if your goal is to lose weight effectively and sustainably, your initial focus should be on nutritional change. If you are completely sedentary when you begin with counseling, exercise will be gradually introduced. Working out has numerous advantages, but it should be done correctly.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WITH WEIGHT LOSS COUNSELING?
Dr. Gupta and his skilled team can help you redefine your relationship with food and eating. Overall, weight loss counseling can assist you in determining what is preventing you from reaching your weight loss specific goals, including:
- Understanding the emotions you may associate with food;
- Breaking old habits and updating broken thinking;
- Increasing self-esteem and confidence;
- Finding practical approaches to weight loss.
WILL GENETICS INFLUENCE MY WEIGHT LOSS RESULTS?
Your genes influence how your body metabolizes food and, as a result, play a significant role in your weight. Weight loss counseling can include genetic testing, which allows us to determine what types of foods you would respond best to, what foods to avoid, how much food to eat, and other markers related to healthy behavior. Using this data, we can create a customized ideal nutrition and fitness program based on your DNA.
